Leading Edge 48.18: Harvard Mk.4 Goldilocks Team


$8.00 direct from Leading Edge Decals


Scott Van Aken


Here is another most welcome reprint from the folks at Leading Edge. This is for the Harvard Mk.4 aircraft with the Goldilocks display team. There were seven aircraft in this team and you can model any one of the seven team aircraft with this sheet.  

A bit of information on the Harvard. First off, it is not a T-6. There are two main visual differences between the two. One is that the aircraft has a rather long exhaust. The other is that the rear window has an extra frame on it. The base of this window is also shallower than on the T-6. As this is a post war Harvard, it has the T-6G style greenhouse without all the panes. Note also that there is a small pipe running from just under the windscreen on the right side to the front of the exhaust for the oil used to make smoke. The aircraft also have the ARN-6 ADF antenna on the rear fuselage. The planes also lack main gear doors.

There are a couple of kits out there from Monogram and Ocidental that will fill the bill for 1/48 modelers. Neither are particularly new and both have been reboxed by various companies so when you do your search, you'll find more than two options.

The decals themselves are superbly printed and you'll find Leading Edge's usual excellent instructions.
